The Leaders in Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric Physicians of Georgia is a comprehensive hyperbaric medicine and wound resolution practice with multiple centers located in Georgia and North Carolina. We have been caring for patients since 1993.
Hyperbaric Physicians of Georgia treats a variety of medical indications approved and mandated by Medicare guidelines utilizing hyperbaric oxygen therapy in Atlanta. These guidelines have been studied and proven to show the most beneficial outcome for patients with the referenced diagnosis below. With each diagnosis the protocol and length of treatment will differ. Each protocol will be set forth by the treating physician.
Conditions Treated with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
There are several benefits associated with intermittent exposure to hyperbaric doses of oxygen. Oxygen partial pressures in the blood can be elevated to 2000 mmHg at the tissue level. Either alone, or more commonly combined with other medical and surgical procedures, these mechanisms serve to enhance the healing process of treatable conditions. This treatment will cause the following:
Increases White Blood Cell Creation
Stimulates Release of Stem Cells
Improves Quality of Life in Patients
Most Conditions Covered by Insurance
Reduces Healing Time for Injured Tissues
Why Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a non-invasive medical treatment administered by delivering 100% oxygen at pressures greater than two to three times the normal atmospheric (sea level) pressure to a patient in a hard hull chamber. Hyperbaric oxygen acts as a drug, eliciting varying levels of response at different dosages. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been proven to have numerous physiologic effects, including hyperoxygenation of tissues allowing oxygen delivery to tissues with decreased blood flow or low hemoglobin (oxygen carrying component of the red blood cell).
